Abstract: Production problems of farm machinery are studied in the three major districts namely Dhaka, Comilla and Bogra that play a vital role in supplying farm machinery throughout the country. Most of the manufacturer in the surveyed area has taken farm machinery production as a seasonal business or secondary business due to seasonal demand of farm machinery. Manufacturer gets technical assistance from non-government organizations (NGOs) only. Research stations provided limited range of technical support to the manufacturer. They are not getting financial support from any kind of sources. Production problems are classified as problem before going to production, on going production problem and post-production. Before going to production manufacturer face capital, setting up infrastructure, land, skilled labour, complexity in taking bank loan, political unrest, unhealthy environment, getting electricity connection, bureaucratic complexity and technical know-how of the worker. On going production problems include capital for bulk production, skilled labour, trained technicians, load shedding, double taxation system, raw materials supply, low quality of raw material. Post-production problems are marketing competition with below standard implement of other manufacturer, unauthorized enterprise makes same type of implement of below standard and sold at low price, seasonal demand, ware house, marketing set up, marketing facility. Suggestions in this context are proposed to minimize the problems of producing farm machinery in the country.
